Earth sciences education

Watch out for new Earth and Geoscience Sciences resources and programs aligned with the Australian Curriculum for learning at the South Australian Museum and beyond.

The Museum and the Department of Energy and Mining have a long and significant history in collaborating on STEM-based projects for the community that raise awareness of the importance of the State’s mineral resources, its geology and the opportunities this natural wealth create

Under a new partnership, the Museum will engage students in Earth and Geoscience Sciences across all year levels. The partnership will continue to deliver the Department’s summer school for senior students. It also ensures geoscience is included in the Museum’s April school holiday program and its remote APY Lands student program, and confirms the department’s involvement in major events such as Fossil Fest 2020 and Science Alive.

A specialist professional development program for the state’s science teachers will also be delivered, bolstering the Department’s commitment to encourage STEM learning and the Geoscience Pathways Project.
